Thursday, a protester caused a ruckus at a rally in Las Vegas, where vice president Joe Biden was stumping for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. The man yelled out to the crowd:

‘Bill Clinton is a rapist!’

Vice President Biden was speaking to rally support for the Democratic candidate for Senate, Catherine Cortez Masto, at Culinary Workers’ Union. The boisterous and enthusiastic crowd tried to drown out the man’s shouted remarks by booing him. Biden told the gathered supporters:

‘No, let him go. Let him go, that’s OK.’

Then the crowd began chanting “When they go low, we go high!” The line is borrowed from first lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in July. Biden told the crowd:

‘Well, that’s exactly right.’

Similar protests and outbursts have plagued the Clinton campaign this week. President Barack Obama, when confronted by a protester, gleefully heckled the man right back, telling him to “go get your own rally.”

Hillary Clinton faced a pair of “Bill Clinton is a rapist” protesters in Pueblo, Colorado, on Wednesday, , as well as disrupting a rally with Al Gore in Miami.

In Iowa, Bill Clinton himself confronted protesters on Wednesday, and had the aplomb to work the protesters words into his own speech in a humorous fashion, saying:

‘Give that guy a hand — they’ve had a very bad week in the Trump campaign, and he feels bad. Give him a hand!’

Since the unearthing of a video from 2005 by the New York Times showing alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women without their consistent, the Trump camping has tried to pivot the conversation toward Bill Clinton’s history of sexual indiscretions.

The protests stem from alt-right website InfoWars and podcast host Alex Jones, who has offered his listeners thousands of dollars to appear on camera saying or showing signs that say, “Bill Clinton is a rapist.”

Jones has offered a $1,000 bounty to any listener who can get on television for at least five seconds wearing a “Bill Clinton rape” shirt, and $5,000 to anyone shouting “Bill Clinton is a rapist” while wearing the shirt.
